Diversinet Announces End of Reporting Issuer Status and Provides Update on Liquidation Proceedings

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Diversinet Corp. ("Diversinet"), by Duff & Phelps Canada Restructuring Inc. (the "Liquidator"), in its capacity as the Court-appointed Liquidator of Diversinet, today announced that the Ontario Securities Commission, the Alberta Securities Commission and the British Columbia Securities Commission have issued a decision deeming Diversinet to have ceased being a reporting issuer under Canadian securities legislation, in accordance with Diversinet's previously announced application for such a decision. A copy of the decision is available on the website established by the Liquidator at www.duffandphelps.com/restructuringcases.

As a result of the decision, Diversinet is no longer required to comply with the continuous disclosure and similar provisions in Canadian securities legislation. However, Diversinet shareholders will still have access to relevant information relating to Diversinet as the Liquidator intends to continue to post information on the website referred to above, and shareholders are advised to check that website from time to time for updates. In addition to the obligations imposed upon the Liquidator pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (Ontario), the Liquidation Plan requires the Liquidator to report to Diversinet's shareholders at such times and intervals as the Liquidator may deem appropriate with respect to matters relating to Diversinet, its assets and such other matters as may be relevant to the Liquidation Plan. In this regard, the Liquidator provides the following update on the status of the Liquidation proceedings:

--  The Liquidator has completed its administration of the Court-approved
    claims procedure, the purpose of which was to solicit claims against
    Diversinet, its subsidiaries and its directors and officers. All claims
    have been resolved as at the date of this press release;
--  Diversinet's assets under the Liquidator's administration are: (i) cash
    of approximately US$3.5 million, of which US$1.75 million is on deposit
    in an escrow account with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association in
    accordance with the provisions of a transaction with IMS Health
    Incorporated completed by Diversinet prior to the commencement of its
    Liquidation proceedings. The cash in the escrow account is expected to
    be released to the Liquidator in September, 2014; and (ii) accounts
    receivable of C$135,000;
--  The Liquidator has filed an application for Clearance Certificates
    pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Clearance Certificates").
    The Liquidator will facilitate the final distribution to shareholders
    once the Clearance Certificates are obtained from Canada Revenue Agency
    ("CRA"). CRA's process for issuing Clearance Certificates is typically
    lengthy and, accordingly, the timing of a shareholder distribution is
    unknown at this time; and
--  The Liquidator anticipates the quantum of the distribution to
    shareholders to meet or exceed the range provided by Diversinet in its
    press release dated September 13, 2013, being US$0.05 to US$0.065 per
    share.

Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
